and i will site the university of california. he went 3 and nine and less than half of the football players graduated from an elite institution . this is it a coach who harmed the reputation of one of the elite universities in the country. it is not only the tuitition price. but the value of the degree. >> emac you got to break the tie here. >> listen, i think that the college football program is great. how long can you squeeze students and continue to pay high college coach pay? how can you do that when basically the middle class is getting squeezed and can't afford college tuition. pugh research saying 97 percent of the college grauds can't afford it mississippi state, he gets 2.5 million and a fifth of the population of the state is unemployed and in poverty. i don't know how you can do that and squeeze the middle class students. >> mike as you may had well know is the czar of forbes magazine if you cut the salaries of the coaches, will it increase or lower tuition. ni think john is right. it would increase it. but measure ceo performance look at kelley in dame dame. he notre dam

money is spent? the once bankrupt city of ayaho, california decide to go let its taxpayers vote how to spend 30% of its budget. but victoria says this is a bad idea. this is a flip side. explain. >> i know. it's hard because truly we don't trust our politicians to do the right things 'cause they haven't done the right things in the past. however, i think that is their job. we should hold them accountable and there should be transparency. what we've seen in the state o california is really a grand experiment in voter democracy. it has failed we have the highest tax rates in the nation and yet our school funding is bottom of the barrel and our schools rank bottom in the nation. so this kind of -- it doesn't work. you have to have accountability somewhere and it should be in ou elected officials. >> rick used to live in calirnia. now he lives in new york. is it because of this, rick? >> actually no. it's because of you, david. [ laughter ] >> right. >> i actually agree with victoria on the point that voter democracy has not paid off very well in california. but this is a bit difference

generations. as governor he compete with other states for jobs and subsidies are relatively easy. california -- [laughter] anybody from california? california, illinois, connecticut, thank you. but those states are doing is raising taxes, raising regulations and so that's, you know, we are competing. but we do every day is to try and find companies out there that can't compete. i think about simply if you're a business come to think of yourself as a consumer. as a consumer, name the time did the research yourself, i think i'll pay more for the project because i know that company is headquartered in a high tax state. or gosh, i know they have more regulations saw pay more for the product because i know cost the company more for more regulations or takes longer to get a permit. you don't do it. so if we make sure that florida businesses have lower taxes, less regulation and faster permitting time, a pro-business attitude to our businesses will outcompete everybody and will get more jobs and that's what we're doing every day. in contrast, my biggest competitor is texas. texas has been doing the
